    My brothers team, the Youse’s Orioles won last night 7-0. From what I heard, Urban was very hittable had bad command of his offspeed stuff, and was only topping out at 90 mph. My brother went 1 for 2 with a single and a walk against him. Here’s an article from the local newspaper highlighting the game:


    Sounds like there’s a lot of projection involved in his upside. And I think the reports of him touching 95 are a little misleading. Youse’s Orioles are a good team though, probably one of the premier summer collegiate teams in this area so it’s probably the equivalent of the competition he would face in the GCL or Bluefield.

      Thanks for the update! That’s likely his last outing before he signs…should be interesting to see what happens.

    Okay been told:

    Dan Klein wants low first round money to sign to a contract as his buscon ,pun intended, feels he would be Drew Storen next year . It seems there is a difference of about 250k between those slots, so I expect him to sign for slightly more money than Narron, in the mid 600 range. Do not expect this to be announced in public until close to the deadline as the Orioles do not want to rock the MLB slotting system boat.
